Bradley and Judy Niemeyer designed the first layout and foundation pieces for Raindrops in 2005. The pattern sold out about a year ago and has been off the market for a while pending updates to bring it up to current Quiltworx design standards. We are thrilled to release Raindrops once again with a new layout for our cover quilt using a mix of several fabric collections designed by Judel and Judy Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures. A sewing technique called foundation paper piecing is used when sewing the pieces onto the foundation units. Curved piecing and traditional piecing skills are required to join the units after the foundation piecing is completed.

"Just wanted to let you know that a quilt I started a long time ago at a retreat at Glacier Camp, has won a second place ribbon at Spring Paducah. I altered the Rainbow Pattern, added some fun appliqué, and named it SPLAT!"
Congratulations Dawn and Debbie on a beautiful quilt!
"I made this quilt for my grandson and his bride, Grant and Elisabeth. Grant likes orange and Liz likes blue. I used 10 different oranges and 13 different blues. It was a fun quilt to sew and was quilted by Two Cold Feet from Kindred, ND. "
Sorry, there are no classes scheduled for Raindrops 2016 at this time.
